State police are looking for the male driver whose SUV—going too fast for conditions—slammed into a utility pole on an icy Lower Milford road early Saturday and then abandoned the vehicle and fled on foot.

State police said the 12:20 a.m. crash was in the area of 5156 Kraussdale Road in an extreme southern part of the township, not far north from the upper Montgomery County community of East Greenville.

The crash site is about 705 feet south of Kings Highway South.

Police said a 2011 Ford Explorer was westbound on a part of Kraussdale Road that was icy and snow-covered, has no streetlights or other source of ambient lighting and no visible painted lines dividing the eastbound and westbound lanes.

The SUV was going too fast for conditions when it went around a sharp curve. It traveled about 15 feet southwest on the south shoulder of the eastbound lane, then hit a utility pole with its front passenger side, police said.

The Explorer began spinning clockwise and came to rest facing north. The driver, described as being about 6 feet tall, fled west on foot.

Anyone with information is asked to call Trooper Stephen M. DeAngelis at state police at Fogelsville, 610-395-1438.
